My husband and I had one of the best, most spiritual experiences of our lives the week after Thanksgiving when we flew with Westwind Air Service pilot, Bill, on a 3 hour tour that passed over Sedona and flew over the Grand Canyon! We found Westwind to be an extremely professional yet personable operation. A mix-up in the date of... More

Took this optional excursion on our tour through National Parks with Archers Cosmos (excellent tour). Paid $269 p.p. for the 90 minute Rainbow Bridge flight. Comfortable flight with excellent view as everyone is afforded a window seat. Informative commentary from start to finish. Our pilot was very professional as on landing she seemed to disappear and didn't do the usual... More

The flight with Westwind to the Grand Canyon turned out to be e highlight of our trip to Scottsdale. Our pilot Jim had not only tons of experience, but also a very pleasant personality which made the trip even more special. Our two teenagers, who had not been to the Grand Canyon before, loved it, and even for someone who... More

Fantastic experience! Wonderful, professional, friendly staff. Took Deluxe tour of Grand Canyon which includes 30 minute flight over canyon and ground tour. Do not miss this opportunity to see the Grand Canyon in its grandeur!!!! My husband and I are still talking about what a fantastic experience we had 2 days ago.

"What an awesome adventure," is the best way to describe the scenic Aerial Tour taken by my husband and I today. The professionalism, friendliness of the office coupled with our pilot, Rose's navigational skills made our trip to Arizona complete!

South Rim "Signature" tour. From the moment Ron picked us up for our memorable Grand Canyon day trip we knew we were in the hands of a warm, friendly super efficient team. And so this came to pass. Upon arrival at the small terminal we became "first class" passengers all the way starting with a welcome inviting us to refreshments... More

We had an amazing trip today! Brian, our pilot and tour guide, was wonderful - thank you for everything! It was incredible to see the canyon from the plane, the Sky Walk, the helicopter and the boat! The photographer on the Sky Walk took great pictures as did our boat driver and of course Brian throughout the trip and the... More

We scheduled our day tour with Westwind up to the canyon. We had been to the canyon before by train and by private car. The air tour is the best way to see it because they fly directly over the canyon, both north and south rims. Everyone at Westwind was professional, extremely friendly...from the office staff to the pilots and... More

Professional, friendly, and accommodating. We recently had the pleasure of taking Westwind Air Service’s Grand Canyon West Rim Adventure Tour. We were extremely impressed with the entire operation and all involved were exceedingly helpful from the moment we inquired about taking this tour, until we returned from seeing the West Rim of the Grand Canyon. The tour itself was a... More

This was a great excursion with the teenagers. The flight to Grand Canyon from north Phoenix was super fun. The helicopter ride to the bottom of the canyon was pretty short but still fun for a family who had not ever been on one. Overall the trip was popular in our household an we were back in phoenix by 3pm... More
